I'm a girl on a mission...I write and read great poetry and fiction and I'd like to see it gain the status and respect it deserves. I want to bring the Po-Biz full-swing into the world as we now know it - the world of Twitter and 24/7 texting and of MySpace and Facebook. I even thought about calling it Cellphone Storytelling, giving it a Reality Show starring someone named Chace or Adriana where everyone in the country could become greedy with words. Fellow writers chime in here. What great… Continue

Hi Mary,

Welcome to She Writes in California!! I'm so glad you joined us!! Make sure to introduce yourself in the 'Howdie' discussion if you haven't already! I would love to attend one of your writing seminars. I really need some money for graduate school this fall so I will be applying to lots of scholarships!

Dear Mary,

Thank you for reading "Sower's Promise". Please feel free to send me your impressions at mdoallas@aol.com. I find reader feedback so very helpful.

I will look forward to learning more about your recommendation of Hoa Nguyen and her and her husband's journal. Her name is not familiar to me, and I'm sure I'll enjoy her poetry.

Hi Mary,

Nice to "meet" you. 4 Golden Retrievers! Talk about having your hands full. Wow! An awesome breed - one of my favorites. Hubby and I would love to have a dog but I don't think we could keep up. Besides we have one beautiful, temperamental cat -- along with the 3 kids. :-))

Hi, Mary. My son is in Palo Alto and I love your area! Your comment on the Self Pubbed or 3 Book Deal blog mentioned that you received $20,000 in writing grants. Could I find out more from you about that? I'll friend you now! Many thanks.
Barbara
